Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Donald Trump Jr. in Russia probe

The Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, as part of an inquiry into issues involving Russia

The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is headed by a Republican, has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Donald Trump, as part of an inquiry into issues involving Russia, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

Axios.com, which was the first to report the subpoena, said that Trump Jr.'s testimony is being sought in connection with questions about his prior testimony to Senate investigators in 2017.

Trump Jr. testified that year that "I was peripherally aware" of a potential deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

However, President Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen earlier this year told a House committee that he had met with both Donald Trump Jr. and his sister, Ivanka Trump, "approximately 10" times to brief them about that ultimately aborted effort.

CNBC has reached out for comment from the Trump Organization, which Trump Jr. runs with his brother Eric, the White House and the Senate Intelligence Committee.
